    Best thing you can do is go through the hard drive and look at the properties of programs and files to see what's taking up so much space mate.

    P.S. Am I an idiot for looking at one of the pictures, then trying to click the red X in the corner of the picture to close it :rofl:

    2 options (backup the stuff you need first)

    1) Reset your device to factory setting which removes all personal files and then install Win 10.

    2) Create a bootable Win 10 USB. Boot up using your USB drive and format your hard drive before installing Win 10

    Have you tried uninstalling the very large and entirely replaceable video game (or at least just temporarily move it to an external drive/network share) you've consumed your storage on?

    Oh, disable hibernation, that alone takes up around 10gb disk space

    Run powercfg -h off in CMD as admin and restart.

    Thank me later
